WSUS and Authentication

I am blaming this question on the fact that it is Monday.  I have just installed WSUS in my lab.  The enclave it is installed in is a workgroup.  The machines I want to update are in a Windows Domain.  I can't get the clients to download updates due to a permissions issue.  Is there a way I can get my Domain machines to access a machine that is not on their domain WITHOUT have to make any major changes?

Have you verified your permissions as in here?

My clients are reporting, that isn't the issue.  They are unable to download from the server.  All my permissions are set correctly.  I am thinking that it is because my server is not on the same domain.

I think it may be a BITS problem.  I cannot get BITS to start on one of the clients.  Haven't checked them all.

It turned out to be a permission issue with BITS.  Had to reset the permissions on the BITS service.
